Harry Potter Names - Would you use them?
There are a LOT of interesting names in the Harry Potter series, and I'm trying to figure out which ones are actually usable in the real world. I'm posting a similar thread in the Boys category, this is just girls names. What do you think?
MeropeCurrent faves for boys: Kieran Blake ♥ Judah Kyler ♥ Declan Micah ♥ Felix Anthony ♥ Rhys Brennan
Current faves for girls: Arabella Quinn ♥ Lyra Charlotte ♥ Kara Penelope ♥ Jessamine Claire ♥ Maren Evanna
I'd love some votes on my name list: http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9796308

I'm not a big HP girl (actually hate the series, but that's a whole different story, haha), but I love Aurora! Isabelle Aurora Grace is my top choice for a girl. I also like and would possibly consider (in the right combo) Luna, Hermione, Mirabella/Mirabelle, Araminta, Ginevra, Emmeline, Bellatrix (although I prefer Beatrix and Isabelle/Isabella/Annabel/Annabella/Mirabelle/Arabella), and Rowena.

I love some of them but wouldn't use them for certain reasons, others there is no way I would ever even consider them, haha.
Hermione - No. Too recognizable as a HP character, though lovely.
Ginevra - I love this name, but can't see using it on an actual child.
Luna - I would use it maybe as a middle name.
Andromeda - Middle name.
Celestina - Nope. Not my style.
Jocelind - Looks too made up.
Aurora - Love! This has been on my list for a while with the nn Rory.
Emmeline - Love this name. Is one of my neices, so won't be using it myself
Mirabella - Pretty, but not my style.
Lavender - I like this, but probably not enough to ever consider using it. Maybe in one of my stories.
Araminta - I really like this for some reason. Not sure if I would ever actually use it, though.
Bellatrix - Nope. And not just because the character is awful. I just don't care for the name.
Nymphadora - All I think is Nymphomaniac and Dora the Explorer. Though I love Tonks, her given name is just not on my radar.
Lysandra - I love the name Lysander for a boy, so I like this as well. But I think I'll leave it just on my boys list.
Narcissa - Narcissistic.
Elladora - Meh.
Marietta - A town in Pennsylvania where my two brothers-in-law are from.
Rowena - Love. Would totally use it.
Honoria - I prefer simple Honor, but likely wouldn't ever use that.
Pansy - Can't get past the way this one would be teased.
Minerva - Oh I love Professor McGonagall! Not sure if I could use the name though.
Astoria - Not my style. Plus, isn't there a hotel somewhere call the Astoria, or am I imagining that? It might have just been in a tv show, haha.
Melania - Love.
Augusta - Not my style.
Charity - This one and...
Merope - This one are really the only two I strongly dislike.
Edited to add these from a pp:
Padma - I would feel weird using this because it doesn't really fit my culture and I don't know how that would be perceived.
Ariana - Very pretty, but reminds me of an annoying character from Days of Our Lives, haha.
Daphne - Not awful, not sure I'd ever use it. Maybe for a pet!
Millicent - Nope. Dislike.
Fleur - Maybe a middle.
Gabrielle - Pretty, but not my style.
Lily - Lovely! Definitely a middle option for me.
Molly - One of my dogs growing up. A great name, but yeah. She was my puppy.
